The world renowned international warrior scholar & Garvey Expert, Professor Tony Martin, has joined the ancestors, making his transition in the land of his birth, Trinidad & Tobago, at West Shore Medical Hospital.  He was 70 years old.

 

Professor Tony Martin was Emeritus Professor of Africana Studies at Wellesley College, Massachusetts, where he taught  from 1973 to 2007. Prior to coming to Wellesley, he taught at the University of Michigan-Flint, the Cipriani Labour College (Trinidad), and St. Mary's College (Trinidad). He had been a visiting professor at the University of Minnesota, Brandeis University, Brown University, and The Colorado College. He also spent a year as an honorary research fellow at the University of the West Indies, Trinidad.

 

Professor Martin has authored, compiled or edited 14 books. His most recent was Caribbean History: From Pre-Colonial Origins to the Present (2012) published by Pearson Education. Earlier works include Amy Ashwood Garvey: Pan-Africanist, Feminist and Mrs. Marcus Garvey No. 1, Or, A Tale of Two Amies (2007), Literary Garveyism: Garvey, Black Arts and the Harlem Renaissance (1983), and the classic study of the Garvey Movement, Race First: the Ideological and Organizational Struggles of Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association (1976).

 

Professor Martin qualified as a barrister-at-law at the Honourable Society of Gray's Inn (London) in 1965, did a B.Sc. honours degree in economics at the University of Hull (England), and the M.A. and Ph.D. in history at Michigan State University.

 

Professor Martin's articles and reviews have appeared in such journals as the Journal of Negro History; Journal of African American History; American Historical Review; African Studies Review; Washington Post Book World; Journal of Caribbean History; Journal of American History; Black Books Bulletin; Jamaica Journal; Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East; and many others.

 

Professor Martin was well known as a lecturer in many countries. He has spoken to university and general audiences all over the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and England, as well as in Africa, Australia, Bermuda, and South America. In 1990 he delivered the annual DuBois/Padmore/Nkrumah Pan-African lectures in Ghana. In 2004 he was one of the principal speakers at the First Conference of Intellectuals of Africa and the Diaspora, which was sponsored by the African Union in Senegal.  In 2003, he assisted London Pan Africanists in defeating Ken Livingstone's negro stooge, Lee Jasper, by delivering two lectures organised and financed by the Pan African community after Jasper had dis-invited him from the Mayor of London's "First Voices" conference. 

 

He was generally acknowledged as the world’s greatest authority on the life and work of Marcus Mosiah Garvey and was the official historian of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League.

May his transition into the realm of the Ancestors be a smooth one. We best honour him by learning from his work and taking example from his mighty legacy. 

 

Ase.
